Try to isolate each problem. Make sure that your gas tank float and sensor are working properly. Test the wires for continuity. If that's okay, then you know the problem is either farther up the loom, a fuse, or an ECU issue. Do the same for the temp sensor. If the voltage is low, it's possible that there's a current leak on that circuit. Follow procedures for finding current leaks, charles humblemechanic youtube video is an excellent example.
